I can't see Romney going over well in Michigan. Crazy gun-nuts, devoted muslim communities and poverty-stricken black folks are not exactly fans of the Mormons.

Paul wouldn't say "Go Fish." That would imply he knows in general that he's playing a card game. I'd actually expect him to say something more along the lines of "Constitution" or "Croissant Sandwich".

After Romney's insult of Michigan in his NH speech? What the hell was he thinking?

I can't find a transcript, but he insulted it by saying it was decrepit and such because it had been run by Democrats for so long.

I am reading too much into it that he is pulling ads in other states to fund this when he could quite easily loan himself a few million more and run the ads in all the states? Does he see that as a bad ROI?

I'd have to double check the number, but he's already contributed somewhere in the neighborhood of $11 million of his own money.

Umm... that's easy. Bill Brasky wins.

Ron Paul would raise Romney a few ounces of gold, since Romney's chips are being devalued by the Federal Reserve anyway.

themindiswatching: /doesn't Michigan not count this year?

For the Democrats, no, it doesn't.

The Republican delegates have been halved IIRC due to MI moving the primary up.

12/19 poll...

I can't find any more recent polls. What I was showing was the trend -- Romney's got no momentum in Michigan, and Huckabee was surging as of late December, before Romney lost twice and Huckabee won Iowa.

I am aware of that. He is also worth 150 million plus and should be able to come up with a another million or two for the campaign in the short term on the assumption that it will be repaid with donations after victory. Unless he doesn't see it.

Romney won in Wyoming.

So I guess the question is: with the eventual Republican nominee decided after Super Tuesday, everyone else will drop out. That means Ron Paul, if he stays in, will garner close to 30-40% of the vote in later states (as people won't bother to show up). What does that accomplish?

If Ron Paul agrees not to run as a libertarian to the GOP (and tone down the crazy, and eventually endorse the nominee), they will probably give him a slot to make a prime time speech at the convention.

FriarTuck: a prime time speech at the convention

A blistering attack on the failures of the Republican party...doesn't sound particularly likely; they'll probably force him to endorse the nominee before they let him on stage. He'll look like he's gotten lobotomized when he mumbles about 'taking it to the terrorists' and 'lower taxes'.

I heard that during the filming of that scene that none of the punches were pulled. I guess there was a little animosity between them. I wonder how Lee would have done if David Carridine had done a movie with him.

2nd place in every state isn't quite good enough. he needs to win some. even if he is second to someone different every time.

Because the Republicans are the ones stonewalling any progress through the State Congress. They accepted Granholm's attempt to start taxing previously untaxable services only to back out and block it after the threat of state shutdown was over. If anything, the state is suffering because of Republican destruction and putting all our eggs into the auto industry basket.

Don't think that the numerous unemployed union workers are forgetting that, or what Bush did to the state. And many of them KNOW that Republicans are the ones who destroyed the state.
